“The brand-new Premium Economy Class can be an important milestone in our strategy aimed at linking individualisation with quality.

“The customer can individually choose the travel class according to his or her needs, whether the preference can be to fly in a cost- conscious manner in Economy Class, treat oneself to a little more service as well as comfort in Premium Economy or luxury travel in Business Class,” said Austrian Airlines chief commercial officer, Andreas Otto.

In particular, the brand-new Premium Economy Class can be designed to appeal to passengers who want to experience a higher level of service as well as comfort on flights to their holiday destinations, as well as cost-conscious companies which want their employees to travel with more comfort on business trips.

The brand-new Premium Economy seat produced specially for the Lufthansa Group can be supplied by the aircraft seat maker ZIM as well as provides passengers with plenty of legroom based on seat spacing of up to 97 cm or 38 inches.

Additional footrests take the strain off the legs during a long flight.

The central armrest with fold-out table between the seats as well as a personal, broad armrest for every passenger allows for more privacy as well as more room on the side.

In addition, every seat can be equipped with its own power outlet as well as USB port.
